Overview

For more than two thousand years, the Heart Sutra has been part of the daily life of millions of Buddhists. This concise text, so rich and laden with meaning, concentrates the very heart of Buddhism into a powerful and evocative teaching on the interdependence of all reality.

In Essence of the Heart Sutra, the Dalai Lama masterfully unpacks the Heart Sutra so that any reader can benefit from its teachings - teachings meant to help us release ourselves from suffering and live with true compassion. Comprised of his "Heart of Wisdom" talks, originally delivered to thousands of listeners in 2001, the book offers the Dalai Lama's commentary as well as his easy-to-follow overview of Buddhist philosophy that places the sutra within its historical and philosophical context. With additional contributions by scholar and translator Thupten Jinpa, Essence of the Heart Sutra is the authoritative presentation of a text seminal to the world's religious heritage.

Excellent inscribed. It reads as if one was in a conversation with the Honorable Dalia Lama himself. This is a great text to supplement one's reading about Buddhism in general and illumines the essence of the Heart S¿tra ¿¿¿¿¿. It is an engaging rad and brisk, per se, i.e., it is not bogged down to heavy insights or hard to decipher Koans, which as re great, but for "newcomers" to Buddhism, will be confusing and a "turn-off" due to the lack of understandability that K¿ans ¿¿ propagate or put forth to the reader (purposefully). Please enjoy and Namaste ¿¿¿¿¿¿.
